An ancient evil is making its way to Hearthstone in the coming weeks, bringing with it more than 100 new cards for players of the popular mobile game to employ in battle.
Blizzard has announced that Hearthstone‘s third expansion, “Whispers of the Old Gods,” is on its way, introducing 134 cards and the might of Azeroth’s four Old Gods, which essentially splits the new cards into two types: brand new cards and twists on cards players already know. (For a peek at some of these cards, head over to Polygon or to the expansion’s official website.)
Card packs from “Whispers of the Old Gods” will be available in the game’s Arena mode, and available to purchase with either in-game or real money at the same prices as Hearthstone‘s other card packs. Blizzard is also letting players in the weeks leading up to the launch can pre-order a 50-pack bundle for $49.99. Blizzard will continue to reveal more cards up until the expansion’s launch later this year. The pack will also signal the launch of the game’s wild and standard format modes, which affect what cards and packs players are allowed to use.
